* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', shards are this during missions and multiplayer matches. They are basically this game's equivalent to the gold obtained during typical {{MOBA}} matches. As stars are put under duress in a Darkening process, they exude waves of energy which coalesce into plasmite crystals (aka "shards") when they pass through certain particles or atmospheres. These shards are highly charged with energy, and therefore, are prized where resources are low. In game, shards are found from destroying ExplodingBarrel-like canisters, and large shard crystals as well as occasionally as dropped loot from defeated enemies. In missions, the large shard crystals tend to used to power obstacles which open up once said crystals are destroyed. When enough shards are obtained, they can be used to purchase turrets, traps, and drones; activate gear; and in certain Multiplayer modes, buy more powerful Minions. In The Void's Edge, they can be used to give Wolf a temporary upgrade from among three options with one upgrade per person.

->''And when at last it is time for the transition from megacorporation to planetary government, from entrepreneur to emperor, it is then that the true genius of our strategy shall become apparent, for energy is the lifeblood of this society and when the chips are down he who controls the energy supply controls Planet. In former times the energy monopoly was called "The Power Company"; we intend to give this name an entirely new meaning.''

* In Creator/TimPowers' ''Dinner At Deviant's Palace'', the dominant currency in a ScavengerWorld L.A. is a high-proof distilled alcohol: useable as a fuel, a disinfectant, or as plain ol' booze, hence much in demand.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' has one of the most basic versions of this -- employees of Yu-Shan are paid in ambrosia. That is, little coins of the most delicious food ever. It's mentioned that a common problem amongst new bureaucrats is the ''literal'' consumption of their entire operating budget. In addition, ambrosia can be transformed into...well, pretty much anything, really. This is generally the use toward which it is expected to be put--why eat it when a single coin could give you more resources than the mayor of a small city?

* The ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' games have energy cells as the subsidized basis of the economy. However, while energy cells power production and serve as the basic foundation of the games' dynamic economy, they aren't actually the main currency, which is just the humble {{Credit}}.

** In Creator/TerryPratchett's non-Discworld book {{Strata}}, the standard galactic currency is Days. Everyone can get immortality of the AgeWithoutYouth variety from the Treatment but only the Company (which issues the currency) can restore youth. Each Day can be turned in for one day of rejuvenation.

* ''LastExile'' has Claudia, the in-universe universal engine fuel. It's hard to mine and very sought after, so small amounts of it are used as currency. Ran out of gas? Throw your wallet in the tank!

* In the movie ''InTime'', each person's 1 year of life (after they reach 25 years old) is their currency. People are paid in extra life time and pay with the same. When the account runs out, they die immediately.

* In the ''VoidTrilogy'' by Creator/PeterFHamilton, the race of 'Higher' humans use Energy and Mass Allowance (EMA) as a kind of currency. The majority of Highers live non-corporeally, but their EMA can be pooled as part of a 'Faction' or in smaller groups to effect change in both the physical and simulated realms.
* The ''RedMarsTrilogy'' used calories of heat as the basis of the Martian economy.
